We took the ferry from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island, toured the fort there and drove up to Bellingrath Gardens. Did not know there are oil rigs in Mobile Bay. Surprising but interesting.

I have lived and worked on Mobile Bay my whole life. There is so much to see from the USA Alabama, Middle Bay Lighthouse, Sand Island Lighthouse and Dauphin Island are just a few landmarks to see. If you have the chance to visit I highly recommend a trip around the bay.

We come yearly and stay at Dauphin Island. A great place to come and visit. We've visited many places in and around the bay.

Taking the ferry to the other side was very calming see the oil rigs in the gulf. Can just sit back and enjoy the ride and the view

Large bay with even larger marshlands provides for a sportsman's paradise. Great inshore fishing especially for red-fish and speckled trout. Great sailing venue with active sailboat racing fleets on both shores. Clearer water nearer the mouth for swimming and waatersports.

Was a great boat tour of Mobile Bay. The Captains are very knowledgeable of the history very informative. We were able to see things you would not be able to see without taking this tour.

If you want to see the bay without all the walking this is a great trip. Tour guides were great, funny and family friendly. Lots of points of interest along the tour.

A local resident told us about Bayfront park. It's right on the bay. It has trails and a little beach for enjoying the water. Very relaxing.
